Immaculately clean and well presented. The hot tub is an added bonus which was well used by our family. All rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Vic was friendly and welcoming. A very enjoyable stay was had by all the family.

Fantastic house, beautifully kept with all the little extras. The heated flooring was a massive hit with the kids and adults! The owners obviously have thought of all the things you might need and the cupboards were well stocked. Parking is ok but the road is quite narrow. We did a fantastic walk over Black Rock and also a trip to Bakewell. Wirksworth itself was a short walk via the fields which was very pleasant. From a practical side we did have a Waitrose food delivery which was handy, Spencer's the bakery in town was well worth a visit. Overall we had a great weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the house but also the beautiful setting.
